This Microchip Internet Radio Board is perfect for all you budding Nicolai Teslas out there who’d like to build their own Internet radio. The thing ships with MPEG audio codecs, an RJ45 port (no wireless alas), push button switches and an OLED for all your station, track and other display needs. Priced at £71.51, just add a snazzy box, marketing and an insane venture capitalist and you’re set. Kinda.
The Internet Radio Demonstration Board uses the PIC18F67J60 8-bit microcontroller with integrated 10Base-T MAC and PHY to connect to SHOUTcast servers and stream MP3 data to an audio decoder. This demonstration board implements the basic features of an internet radio, such as volume control and station selection.
